The Sanddøla, Nordelva, Bjøra and Høyland watercourse (which includes Eidsvatnet, Eida, Grongstadvatnet and Søråa) are also wonderful rivers for salmon fishing. In traditional English style, harling is a common fishing method in the Namsen. Combining flair and their knowledge of salmon, skilled rowers guide you down the river while you take care of two or three rods.
